Listening Lately {We Were Never Here}

I feel like I have become another victim of the digital age, unable to do just one thing at a time. So, while I love to read a real book, I almost always am listening to another book and at least one podcast. I tend to listen when the boys aren’t in the car and when doing things around the house (cooking, cleaning, laundry, getting ready for the day).

I recently listened to and enjoyed We Were Never Here by Andrea Bartz. It was a true psychological thriller that kept me guessing – and doubting myself – to the bitter end. I disliked both Emily and Kristen at one time or another, and couldn’t really sort out who was good, who was bad or if they were both rotten. This one went quickly for me as I couldn’t wait to see how it ended!

Emily is having the time of her life—she’s in the mountains of Chile with her best friend, Kristen, on their annual reunion trip, and the women are feeling closer than ever. But on the last night of the trip, Emily enters their hotel suite to find blood and broken glass on the floor. Kristen says the cute backpacker she brought back to their room attacked her, and she had no choice but to kill him in self-defense. Even more shocking: The scene is horrifyingly similar to last year’s trip, when another backpacker wound up dead. Emily can’t believe it’s happened again—can lightning really strike twice?

Back home in Wisconsin, Emily struggles to bury her trauma, diving headfirst into a new relationship and throwing herself into work. But when Kristen shows up for a surprise visit, Emily is forced to confront their violent past. The more Kristen tries to keep Emily close, the more Emily questions her motives. As Emily feels the walls closing in on their cover-ups, she must reckon with the truth about her closest friend. Can Emily outrun the secrets she shares with Kristen, or will they destroy her relationship, her freedom—even her life?

I’m reading The Dutch House, watching The Crown and listening to Truth and Justice pod. :-) Let me know what’s got you hooked lately!
